Raising happy humans…


In today’s world with the increasing pressures of technology, activities, school tests, social media, there has never been a greater need for a child to be strong and prepared for a rapidly changing future. 

Anxiety and stress have become the new norm. On average, 1 in 4 youth (Age 16-24) has a mental health condition. This is a growing problem and one we can stop.  

At hoogi it is our mission to reverse this statistic. 

We facilitate a new way of thinking that is empowering and leaves a child feeling like they can master their anxiety and stress and CREATE THEIR FUTURE. Most of us adults were not taught these skills.  We know the fastest and most effective way to teach a child these skills is to teach the adults in their life.  

98% of our clients experience a significant decrease in stress and anxiety in not just themselves, but also their children. 

Happier humans result. 

For Parents

How much more can you do as a parent? The hoogi philosophy is do less, with more quality. All the tools and strategies we share with you allow you and your family a quality of life that you may not have previously thought possible. We give you the fairytale of parenthood combined with the cold harsh reality that there is a LOT to do. The only difference is, how are you thinking about it, therefore how are you approaching it?


For Teachers

Torn between a system that is demanding and a classroom full of children that you only want to do your best by, how do you navigate the overwhelming responsibilities and demands on your time, whilst still being innovative and at the forefront of your field? We teach you the ins and outs of how you can create more space and more capacity to bring out the best in your kids by developing a culture of thinking in your classroom.
